Am I a worrywart?

I feel like I'm crying wolf all the time.

We had preterm scares at 27 weeks - contractions that they stopped with medication. They sent me home and my OB said no big deal (we switched from her, and I like my new OB) Then things were good - no contractions for a while.

Then I got a migrane and DH called the nurse to ask if there was soemthing I could take stronger than just tyonel. Nope, and she makes me come in for fear of pre-e. which I don't have. so they sent me home with the same headache I came in with and a new heartburn from an anti-neaseau medicine they gave me because I was throwing up.

Now, I sit here, 33 weeks, been having contractions on again and off again for the last two nights and have had difficulty timing them. My intuition says somethings weird, but every time we go to the hospital in the past, they send me home.

The LO has decreased his movements in the last 4 hours, but what if he's just asleep, etc? I feel crazy pressure on my cooch (maybe he dropped? i duno anymore) and a vague need to push - but what if I'm just imagining that need?

And moreso, I rescheduled my doctor appt from yesterday to Friday cause I was crazy exhausted/tired and didn't want to drive in that shape. So - I could have all the reassurance in the world right now if I had an appt yesterday morning where the doc said "everything is fine."

DH overreacts and will take me to the hospital in a second so I've been quiet - and he's picked up on it.

Am I being retarded? I feel like such a worrywart, and I'm sure the baby's fine...hell, am I imagining the contractions? What if it's just stomach cramps?


sorry for the dumb vent mamas. I'm going to feel so dumb in 7 weeks when I look back on these posts after I have him on schedule...
